Literary Press Org at S8?

Post by Cenacle » March 27th, 2020, 7:58 pm

hi everyone,

as some here know from my many posts, i run a literary journal called The Cenacle, and a literary press called Scriptor Press New England (scriptorpress.com).

been doing this press work, to give a home to my writings and others, for 25 years as of this April. wondering: do others here do literary journals too? have any of you ever joined forces in collaboration?

let me know here, or at my email - editor@scriptorpress.com - i'd really love to work with others and share inspiration and good ideas!

peace,
raymond

Follow up question: Does anyone here edit a literary journal?

Or let me put this another way - for those of you who publish in journals - what are the ones you like best?

Never really thought about doing that. Just posted to a few sites. Met Doreen on the old Litkicks site. Been writing a book or two, slowly over many years. Time moves along... My 9 to 5 doesn't help, well, except for a check every month. Interesting.

I've posted sporadically online for many years now at several sites, though rarely more than one at a time. Back in 2016 I was courted by a local writers' collective (the Monadnock Writers' Group) after I'd read some of my haiku at a poetry slam; but circumstances prevented me from following through. They have just published an anthology on the theme of life under COVID-19, which contains a short story I'd submitted in response to an open invitation they'd run in the local newspaper. The book is entitled "Penning the Pandemic", and is expected to be available on Amazon in a few weeks. I should revisit the notion of membership and try taking my dabblings to the next level.

excellent! It's a strange affirmation to see one's writing in print. (i exist! i wrote that!)

Yes, it's an oddly exhilarating experience. The only other times I've seen my name in print (beyond the high school literary magazine) were a couple of technical articles I wrote for a small (and now defunct) trade magazine back in the 80s. There was no such thing as "3rd party software" back then, so a lot of us engineering sorts were writing our own, for what were then called "microcomputers". The journal "Access" was a means to share our best code with like-minded nerds.

congratulations....I can relate....I was encouraged by Dan Cuddy ( the Irish Sea as he posts here )....to submit a few poems for the on-line journal the Loch Raven Review.......and three poems were published.......years later Dan told me there was now a printed version on Amazon ....so i ordered a few copies.....the weirdest thing for me was reading the bios for the poets.....everyone but me had mega-credentials, won awards etc....and there was me....this old laid back hippie that just happened to write poems....haha.....cool feeling though seeing your words in print with others that love the craft....I'll look on Amazon for your work.... 8)

That's a nice looking journal, Saw.

My question was less about publishing in other people's journals, and doing the work one's self, like I do with The Cenacle. Judih here publishes her beautiful ku in every issue of mine, going back to 2003 or so.

So I'm raising the question of maybe publishing other S8 members. Seems like there isn't anyone but me here on the editor end of things.

You can see new and old issues of The Cenacle at scriptorpress.com, if you haven't before. Let me know any thoughts on this. I check in here about once a week.

Still not sure what you're asking - are you looking for contributors from s8? Sorry for being so slow on the uptake - must be the heat. Or not enough coffee.... If that's your aim, one or two of my pieces of fiction were favorably received here, I wouldn't mind showing them to you.

My apologies if I was unclear. I was inquiring if anyone else here published their own literary journals, as I do. Seems like everyone is writers here. Just curious if any editors too.
